How do you like the Titan? As soon as I figure this out (and decide on a rear bumper/tire carrier), I will be mounting it. What carrier are you running? Hard top or soft?I've got the Mopar 3" lift (similar to the Teraflex 3" kit). It came with their lower priced Speed Bump setup.
Also running a Titan fuel tank, 35" spare on stock rim, along with 5 gallon water jug, and a rack that normally carries about 20lbs of fire wood.
Fully loaded for a road trip, it squats a bit more than 1" at the back to a more leveled out appearance. Unloaded it has a bit more than an inch rake.
It sounds like your rig will spend a lot more time loaded up, than unloaded. If that is the case a quality set of springs. I think OMU has 2" heavy duty lift springs that may be a good match. Might find someone running them, and see what kind of input you can glean from them.
You make a valid point on the the change of behavior for the air bags. I think it's worth the investment to valve the shocks for the springs/bags.
Hope this helps.
